I dreamed a dream

I once dreamed a dream, A long long time ago, Sending you to the army, A matter of pride for everyone in the town. The last time you left, Never in the world I knew, It was the only time, I would say goodbye. They brought you back too soon, Not in a way I wanted you to be, For I didn’t know what fate had in store for me, But I knew you had completed your duty, As I had did mine. 17 February 2019

A box of Kleenex later and I am in wonderment of all the father's that face this moment with Such strength, when if they would wail we would all sympathize! I felt his loss and pain! Congratulations on your win!
